Went to the Sidney Serious Coffee on a Sunday, mid-morning. It wasn't particularly busy. My husband ordered a drip coffee, I ordered a hot chocolate, both to go. I have never seen such little hustle from workers in any coffee shop, ever. I watched them make my hot chocolate and all they did was throw a tiny bit of chocolate... More

I've almost always found this coffee shop to be busy but never (yet) found a problem with getting a seat (on my own). There are plenty of seats with tables, a few comfy padded chairs and a few tall chairs at the front window where you can watch the people go by, as well as some outdoor seating in dryer,... More

Been in a few times . Coffee is good but no better than Mickey D's but at a premium price. Go to the local bakery first if you are thinking of having a treat. No bottomless cups here 1.25$ for refill. No coffee punch cards for regulars. See you at Mickey D's.

Starbucks on Beacon Street is just great place to sit and watch the world go by. I visit this Starbucks every time I visit Sidney. I am sure that you will enjoy watching the world go by at Starbucks on Beacon sitting outside when you visit Sidney.

In Sidney, BC for the three-day Labor Day weekend, we expected Monday to be a jumping day for businesses—last day of the holiday and sort of the end of summer. Imagine our surprise when we found most of the businesses closed, many with a sign in the window “Closed for Labor Day.” That put a serious crimp in the breakfast... More

Great little place to stop for your caffeine fix. Relaxing atmosphere and great staff. seems like locals love coming by to just chill with their friends on a bright sunny day. best way to introduce Sidney in my books.

An excellent location in Sidney for a coffee either inside on one of their comfy chairs, or outside watching the people go by. Delicious muffins and other goodies to enjoy with your coffee!
